Prayer of the Week

My Hope

By Theresa Mary Grass

Let me recognize, O God,
the good in everyone.
Keep me from a critical attitude
and inspire me to be open to all.
Encourage me to learn from others' ways
and to share knowledge willingly.
Bless me with a heart that loves,
hands that reach out,
eyes that see the beautiful,
and a voice that speaks of truth.

Note: "My Hope" by Theresa Mary Grass is from the anthology Soar! – Follow Your Dreams, edited by June Cotner.
